Breakfast Pasta

How about breakfast for dinner tonight? I decided to make a pasta dish with traditional breakfast flavors...eggs, bacon, cheese. It was a great meal and you can bake the leftovers in a casserole with some heavy cream or half and half for breakfast the next morning,so you can have two meals in one(that is, if you will have any leftovers) :) I hope you enjoy it!

1 lb spaghetti pasta
1/2 lb of bacon
2 TBSP of olive oil
1 onion finely chopped
1 cloves of garlic minced
4 eggs beaten
1 cup of Parmesan cheese (or more to taste)
Handful of chopped cilantro

Saute chopped onions and minced garlic in olive oil till translucent, remove from skillet. Cut bacon in thin strips, and render it in the skillet, transfer to paper towel to drain.

Boil and drain pasta, return to the pot it was cooked in and turn heat on high, add beaten eggs and stir till eggs are scrambled. Add onion mixture, bacon and Parmesan cheese, mix it together. Stir in cilantro leaves and serve immediately.


  1. I saw a breakfast pasta on that new Food Network show where they talk about their favorite dishes ever...I will totally have to try this!

  2. This is really an good idea :) Nothing is wasted.

  3. This sounds like a nice pasta recipe...Should try it one day!!

  4. Oh, looks good. We were foraging about for dinner last night. This would have been perfect. I'll have to keep this in mind.

  5. Yum, this looks so good! I saw Tom Cruise on Oprah last week make a pasta very similar to this!!

  6. I stumbled upon this recipe, my wife just made it and it is delish... plus, it was all done in about half an hour because you can cut, mince, scramble and cook everything while the pasta is boiling.

  7. It looks good. I want to make this one too during breakfast but this time it would be a gluten free pasta since all of us in our family are in a diet.
